TEMPESTARII film by Gast Bouschet & Nadine Hilbert






Dawn spreads its luminous rays across the coast of Iceland, to reveal a sorcerer standing between wine-dark sea and mountainous black rock. He is tempestarii, a figure of medieval lore, undertaking a primitive rite manifested to conjure a storm. The tides of the deep ocean breathe heavily rising and falling across the cinema screen with amplifying power, as the weather-maker beats a mysterious sack against the monolithic cliffs with powerful repetition.

As a magical tool, this sack contains forceful winds pulled from each corner of world. As an analogy, it is aligned with the revolutionary transformations of nature by water, air, solar radiation, and geological shifts and filled with the vast potential of man’s will in alliance with Nature. As an omen, the tempestarii signals profound change on both physical and metaphysical realms.

Presented as both a live performance and an installation, Tempestarii is an immersive experience of video and sound. By demonstrating contemporary art as meteorological sorcery and political activism, the duo Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert raise a storm and blacken the air.

Soundings: A Contemporary Score exhibition @ MOMA, NYC, with Marco Fusinato artwork (and on the main poster!)





Soundings: A Contemporary Score
August 10–November 3, 2013

Special Exhibitions Gallery, third floor
This exhibition is accompanied by a film series.

MoMA's first major exhibition of sound art presents work by 16 of the most innovative contemporary artists working with sound. While these artists approach sound from a variety of disciplinary angles—the visual arts, architecture, performance, computer programming, and music—they share an interest in working with, rather than against or independent of, material realities and environments. These artistic responses range from architectural interventions, to visualizations of otherwise inaudible sound, to an exploration of how sound ricochets within a gallery, to a range of field recordings—including echolocating bats, abandoned buildings in Chernobyl, 59 bells in New York City, and a sugar factory in Taiwan.
The diversity of these works reflects a complex and nuanced field. Yet the exhibition posits something specific: that how we listen determines what we hear. Indeed, the works provoke and evoke—both in the maker and the museumgoer—modes of active listening, and a heightened relationship between interior and exterior space. At a time when personal listening devices and tailored playlists have become ubiquitous, shared aural spaces are increasingly rare. Many of the artists in the exhibition aim for such realities, and the sound they create is decidedly social, immersing visitors and connecting them in space. In many of the works, links are drawn between disparate topographies and subjects, giving rise to new understanding and experiences.

The artists in the exhibition are Luke Fowler (Scottish, b. 1978), Toshiya Tsunoda (Japanese, b. 1964), Marco Fusinato (Australian, b. 1964), Richard Garet (Uruguayan, b. 1972), Florian Hecker (German, b. 1975), Christine Sun Kim (American, b. 1980), Jacob Kirkegaard (Danish, b. 1975), Haroon Mirza (British, b. 1977), Carsten Nicolai (German, b. 1965), Camille Norment (American, b. 1970), Tristan Perich (American, b. 1982), Susan Philipsz (Scottish, b. 1965), Sergei Tcherepnin (American, b. 1981), Hong-Kai Wang (Taiwanese, b. 1971), Jana Winderen (Norwegian, b. 1965), and Stephen Vitiello (American, b. 1964).

Organized by Barbara London, Associate Curator, with Leora Morinis, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance Art.

The exhibition is made possible by MoMA’s Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.

Major support is provided by Jerry I. Speyer and Katherine G. Farley, The International Council of The Museum of Modern Art, The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art, Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA), Richard J. Massey Foundation for Arts and Sciences, and the Danish Arts Council Committee for International Visual Arts.
Additional funding is provided by the MoMA Annual Exhibition Fund.

MoMA Nights with Pauline Oliveros

Tonight’s Music Performance: Pauline Oliveros: What’s the Score?
Pauline Oliveros, accordion

Playing the Roland V-Accordion, Pauline Oliveros will improviseWhat’s the Score? elaborating the play-on-words of her title into an array of volatile, gestural, changing sounds and sound qualities. Oliveros invites the audience to score a sound from her improvisation during the performance by representing it on a card with pencil or pen. A sound might consist of a single note, chord, cluster, or noise heard at any time during the piece, and represented by a drawing, graphic, or word. The cards with the audience scoring of the sounds will be collected and organized into a new score for a future performance.Oliveros (b. 1932) has influenced American music decisively in a career spanning more than 60 years as a composer, performer, author, and philosopher. She pioneered the concept of Deep Listening, her practice based on principles of improvisation, electronic music, ritual, teaching, and meditation, designed to inspire both trained and untrained musicians to practice the art of listening and responding to environmental conditions in solo and ensemble situations.

The String and the Mirror attempts to replicate a traditional approach to the presentation of sound based works, including a range of strategies such as multi-channel systems, spatialized sound and data sonifications. Rather than focusing on artists working with sound as an expanded practice, The String and the Mirror will explore sound as ideology and ontology. Sound will not be used to trace the lines that connect disparate activities and mediums. The work presented will explore the physicality and materiality of the aural, understood as a transgressive alternative to current visual arts practices. Since sound is penetrating and uncontainable, works placed in close proximity will inevitably spill and leak into one another creating a disorienting experience for the attendee, leading them to question where one work begins and the other ends. Emerging artists are not of interest for this show, will we not attempt to contextualize work of an older generation in light of a contemporary practice. There will be no performances aimed at elucidating some of the underlying concepts of the exhibition and the problematized contemporary discourse surrounding sound art. It will be fairly straightforward.
